Ofsted 2018

Thank you to all students, staff, and parents/carers who contributed to such a positive first inspection from Ofsted. There is still work to do but we can be very proud of what has been achieved in such a short time.

If you would like your child to join us in September 2018 please contact us to enquire about Year 7 and Year 12 places.
